I'm wondering if it is possible to do a lot of sprint tri's, be good at them, without hurting the IM training. Looking at the results on the LA Tri, I would have placed much higher just shaving off, say five or ten minutes, which I think is reasonable. The transitions were a full two minutes longer than they could have been. The swim probably could have been two minutes faster without requiring more fitness, and the bike, well the bike ave was only 21.3, which I thought was very slow, so let's say that is an easy five minutes there, then the run maybe two minutes. So, with good technique, it could have been ten minutes faster and that would have been a second place AG instead of 10 and top ten overall. Kind of addictive.
